Attenborough Arts Centre Takeover
Welcome week is all about meeting new people, enjoying your new campus and having a bit of fun. With events running for the whole day, you are sure to find something you really enjoy and find other students with shared interests too.
Bingo with a twist! This sculpture hunt will take you across the main sites of campus allowing you and your friends to discover your new favourite spots at university. Can you find all 12? Bring back a full card of stickers to win prizes. Plus, at 12pm and 1:30pm join comedian, Dan Nicholas, for his comedy sculpture tour! Just meet him outside the marquee on Centenary Square.
Decorative Pot Sign Writing
Halls looking a bit bare? Add a splash of personality and colour to your room with this sign plant pot workshop by professional sign writer Lorna Dunn. You don’t have to be a Picasso, just bring yourself and your imagination in this fun-filled workshop. Sign Pot Creation is inspired by Wildcard Wednesday: a weekly event exclusive to students where you learn a random craft each time.
Explore, take photos, and discover the most iconic parts of campus! Bring friends and take selfies with spots on campus that inspire you. Print your photos with our instant printers and add your selfies to the large campus map, adding to a mosaic of images and stories as new #CitizensOfLeicester
